 I have created some signature and logo brushes to watermark my images. These brushes are dissapearing from my brush selection. Any suggestions on how to save these custom brushes so they will remain on my brush selection. Elements 2018.

Is it an ordinary file like jpeg or PNG? If so you could open it in the Expert workspace and create a brush. From the menu choose:

Edit >> Define Brush

Give it a name E.G. My Watermark and save.

Then select the brush tool and from the pull-down list find your new  brush, usually at the bottom of the list.

You can then apply the watermark to images with a single click.

The beauty of creating a watermark brush is that you can adjust the size and opacity before applying it to individual images.
